Not Everybody Can Do Everything (2013) a film by Peter Wareing
Date:2:00pm to 4:00pm on 28 September 19
Filmed over 14 years (1996-2009), Not Everybody Can Do Everything is an intimate portrait of three residents of Joselow House in Manhattans Upper West Side, a residential home for the blind and severely visually impaired and with developmental disabilities. The home is organized around the effort to assist the clients to gain control over their lives, and to be as self-sufficient as possible. Not Everybody Can Do Everything depicts the relationship of the filmmaker, New Zealander Peter Wareing, who was a volunteer with these residents and offers an insight into a group of adults whose actual experience of disability shows to be more complex and dynamic than is usually understood. Peter Wareing will be present for the screening at the Newtown Community Centre on Saturday 28 September.
Not Everybody Can Do Everything is presented during Mental Health Awareness Week, in association with AURA Festival of Artist Moving Images and CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand.
